Mud City is from the same people as Old Causeway (and places on the island like Parker’s Garage and Ship Bottom Shellfish), and since it’s literally next door, you can use the same private shuttle to get to and from either place. The menu is seafood focused, with things like soft shell crabs, baked clams, and massive crab cakes that are almost entirely made up of crab meat. For those who like to drink, they have a full bar in a converted trailer on the outdoor patio, and for those who like to drink a lot, they fully allow BYOB.
